A.C.E. Diagnostic:Each student entering the A.C.E. program is given diagnostic tests to determine skill and concept mastery. The diagnostic tests assist the evaluator in determining the student’s academic needs in each subject. After the student completes the diagnostic testing, he is given curriculum that meets and challenges him at his performance level.
Four academic areas are tested: math Levels 1-9, English Levels 1-8, reading Levels 1-8 (science, social studies, Bible Reading, and Literature and Creative Writing), and spelling Levels 2-9. These tests cover basic skills normally mastered before high school.
When weak areas are evident from the testing, the appropriate gap PACEs are prescribed to strengthen specific weaknesses. After completing the gap PACEs, the student progresses at his performance level. If he demonstrates mastery at all levels of testing, he has the ability to function at his chronological grade level.
